TRON dApps increasing, but Ethereum leads the way

A recent report shows the continuous increase in the number of dApps developed on the blockchain. TRON responds excellently to the growth rate, but its rival Ethereum still dominates the scene.

Earlier today, the TRON Foundation released its weekly report, and the talented Justin Sun, CEO of TRON and BitTorrent launched an invitation to developers to join the ecosystem:

“According to dapp_review, the number of TRON dApps reached 709 with 9 new added. TRON’s dApp ecosystem is growing at a steady pace, we welcome more developers and users to join us. TRX”.

The information was provided by Mike McCarthy, a TRON supporter who reported on the growth of dApps by comparing the results of the three blockchains, namely Tron, Ethereum and EOS, over the past 90 days.

Altogether 77 new dApps on TRON represent 12.11% of the growth, compared to 130 on Ethereum and its 6.22% growth and 22 on EOS with a growth of only 3.35%.

Despite TRON’s ongoing efforts to take the lead as a dApps blockchain, Ethereum, the smart contract blockchain par excellence, does not stand by and watch, and is also seeing its numbers grow in the industry. 

According to a report this month, Ethereum seems to be off to a great start in 2020, compared to January 2019, with a growth in unique active wallets of 82%.

Specifically, dApp Radar describes Ethereum’s dApp numbers as follows:

“In January 2020 the largest Ethereum category Games & Marketplaces grew by 163% when compared to 2019 January. The biggest hit of January on Ethereum has been the dapp game Brave Frontier Heroes reaching 1,240 active daily unique wallets. PoolTogether doubled their user base by the end of January to 283 users”.

PoolTogether, together with other dApps on Ethereum like MakerDAO, are also part of DeFi or decentralized finance. 

Thanks to the development of this category, the number of average daily active unique wallets increased by 7% in January alone, with MakerDAO reporting an increase of over 350 daily active unique wallets, Compound with over 240 and PoolTogether with about 100. 

Overall, however, from January 2019 to January 2020, Ethereum’s unique daily active wallets increased by 82%, TRON’s increased by 33%, while EOS recorded a 61% reduction in daily active users.
